There is a strain of Trump supporters who like to tell us Trump is playing four-dimensional chess. They say he’s always several moves ahead of Democrats.

This week, he signed a $1.3 Trillion Omnibus Bill; it angered many conservatives. Yet, some of his supporters insisted he was being strategic. Hence, we shouldn’t worry.

The border wall Trump wants to build is expected to exceed $21 Billion. Yet, the Omnibus Bill only allocates $1.6 Billion for wall construction and repair. Furthermore, the Omnibus is $500 Billion more than Barack Obama’s Stimulus Bill in 2009 that birthed the Tea Party.

Now Is the Time For Trump To Start Playing Chess

To this point, Trump has not shown us a four-dimensional chess move. It seems like now would be a good time for him to do so. Especially relevant may be a tweet he sent out on Sunday morning. While the Omnibus is loaded with military spending, Trump implied that some of that money could be used for the wall:

That is a good move, assuming Trump makes it. “Build through M!” = Build through Military.

The primary purpose of the military is national defense. So too is the primary purpose of the border wall. The verbiage in the Omnibus Bill is key. If it allows Trump to use military spending on the wall, it’s genius. If it does not, the argument that Trump is playing four-dimensional chess just got weaker.

Most noteworthy is that Trump touted the military while signing the bill.

Furthermore, the U.S. Army Corps. of Engineers will be responsible for building the wall. As such, funding them will mean funding the military.

Using Omnibus to Build the Wall

If Trump is playing four-dimensional chess, this is a perfect time for the American people to actually see it. To this point, it’s been mostly theory. In addition, he will give his supporters a reason to vote in the mid-terms.

The people who voted for Trump in 2016 are not as motivated as their opponents. Trump’s decision to sign a $1.3 Trillion Omnibus bill widened that divide. As a result, the likelihood of a blue wave in November increased.

However, if Trump is playing four-dimensional chess jujitsu, he can show everyone right now.

At the signing ceremony, a dejected Trump argued that he had to sign the bill. The military had been weakened under Obama. As much as it disheartened him, Trump had to sign it. That’s what he told us.

However, Trump may have been playing close to the vest. If we are to believe the four-dimensional chess purveyors, that is what he must have been doing.

If so, great!

Trump needs a win. In addition to telling us that we would get sick of winning, he’s not winning enough. At first blush, the Omnibus is a loss.

Yes, we need to fund the military.

However, that is not enough to stop a November zeitgeist.

You know what is?

Actual proof that Trump knows how to play four-dimensional chess.

Proof will rear its head if Trump is able to build the wall by spending $21 Billion of the $700 Billion earmarked for the military.

If he does that, he will prove he can play four-dimensional chess.
